TLT14: Call for Papers

14th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories

Warsaw, Poland

11–12 December 2015

http://tlt14.ipipan.waw.pl/


TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and treebanks. The 14th edition of TLT will take place at the Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, on 11–12 December 2015.

For almost 15 years now, TLT has served as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related to syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks; with a focus on all the aspects of treebanking – descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational – but also going beyond treebanks, including other levels of annotation such as frame semantics, coreference or events, to name only a few.

Submissions are invited for papers, posters and demonstrations which present research on treebanks and their intersection with linguistics, natural language processing and other related fields.

TLT14 website: http://tlt14.ipipan.waw.pl/


INVITED SPEAKERS:

• Dag Haug (University of Oslo, Norway)
• Bonnie Webber (University of Edinburgh, Scotland)


WORKSHOP MOTIVATION AND AIMS

Treebanks have proved to be crucial resources for very important NLP applications, such as machine translation and information extraction, as well as supporting resources for various NLP tasks, such as high-quality parsing and POS tagging.

More recent trends in treebank related research have focused on a variety of initiatives, such as annotating deep syntactic and syntactic-semantic interface information; (semi)-automatic conversion of existing treebanks into deeper linguistic formats; multilingual and crosslingual treebanking, including attempts for 'language universal' treebanking; enriching treebanks with additional layers of linguistic annotation as well as world knowledge layer; dynamic treebanking involving a close connection between grammar-based parsing and manual annotation; designing web services for observing and exploiting theoretically diverse treebanks; mapping syntactic and semantic knowledge to Linked Open Data information (LOD).


WORKSHOP TOPICS

The workshop invites the submission of papers, posters and software demonstrations on original and unpublished research on the following topics, including, but not limited to:

• Design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks
• The use of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge
• The use of treebanks for NLP applications
• The role of linguistic theories in treebank development
• Treebanks as a knowledge source for linguistic research
• Treebank annotation beyond syntax: semantics, pragmatics and discourse
• Evaluation and quality control of treebanks
• Tools for creation and management of treebanks
• Treebanks for lesser-resourced languages
• Theories, schemas and applications for parallel treebanks
• Standards for treebanks
• (Semi-)automatic methods for creating large treebanks
• Mapping of treebanks to Linked Open Data resources
• Domain-specific treebanks
• The future of treebanks and treebanking
• Multi-word expressions in treebanks
